December Practical Pistol and Championship Results

Hello All!

Merry Christmas To All!

Ok, first off I want to apologize for making 2 mistakes in scoring some of the results right after the match. I was hurrying to hand out trophies and made 2 errors.

First I made an error on Beth’s scoresheet. When I corrected it, it resulted in her winning the December Single Stack division. It didn’t affect the Championship outcome.
Then I made a mistake on Mick’s scoresheet. When I corrected it, it resulted in a 3rd place finish in the December match. This one did however affect the Championship standings. Congrats Mick on your 3rd place finish for the season. Sorry Jim, you came in 4th. Jim, can you please bring the 3rd place trophy to the club for Mick? Again my sincerest apologies for these errors and the inconvenience they caused.

Ok back to the December results.

The idea for the training came from one of the club’s female members, who pointed out the growing number of women at the club who are new to shooting. Female membership began growing about 10 years ago and has now reached approximately 20 percent of the club’s 700 members.

Battle of the Bulge

Honoring Battle of the Bulge
For the seventh straight year, the Newport Rifle Club held a shooting competition to commemorate American servicemen who fought in the Battle of the Bulge. Shooting at 50 and 100 yards with the types of rifles that were used in the battle, Kevin Mathis of Middletown finished first, Keith Silvia of Bristol was second and Paul Donovan of Newport was third. Craig Corsetti of Newport won the Panzer shoot, which was a 100-yard one shot from the prone position at a nine-inch wide picture of a German tank.

On Dec.16, 1944, Hitler launched the Battle of the Bulge, the largest and bloodiest fighting of World War II involving U.S. troops in Europe. The
battle raged for 45 days in such bitter cold, snow and rain that tanks froze to the ground and many soldiers suffered severe frostbite and trench foot. Of the 610,000 U.S. forces in the fighting, 19,000 died and 70,000 were wounded. The Battle of the Bulge was the last major German offensive and left their military so depleted that they surrendered less than five months later.

Founded in 1876, Newport Rifle Club is the oldest continuously operating gun club in the country. With a membership of 700, the club provides a wide range of safety, marksmanship and firearms care training for youth and adults and offers a number of competitions within the club and throughout the state.
